What is scalability in cloud computing?

Scalability refers to the ability to service a theoretical number of users. Web-based applications (called Cloud Computing) are often mentioned as scalable up to tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, or even more, simultaneous users. That means that at full capacity (usually marked as 80%), the system can handle that many users without failure to any user or without crashing as a whole because of resource exhaustion. The better an application's scalability, the more users it can handle simultaneously.

What exactly is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a metered service over a network (typically the Internet).[1] Computing clouds provide computation, software, data access, and storage resources without requiring cloud users to know the location and other details of the computing infrastructure. Within limits, cloud users can consume any amount of these resources without having first to acquire servers or other computing equipment.

What is the difference between SOA and cloud computing?

SOA refers to service oriented architecture. Its all about a service owned by a individual or an organization which can be used by other. Every service will have description which is given be WSDL(web service description language). The service needs to be hosted somewhere so that others can use the service. We use UDDI (Universal description discovery and integration) to locate a service which we want. Once we find the service we can use the SOAP protocol to communicate with the service.

The main thing with services are that they are loosely coupled, that is they may be written in any language like java, .net etc but still they can be used by any application or platform. We do not need to know the details of the service like how its implemented, what language etc. We just need to give the input and get the result.

Cloud is a very new concept which has recently become very popular. The concept here is very simple. Companies many times may require some resources for a short period of time say for 6 months or 1 year. The resource which they require may need huge investment and the company may be hesitant to use them. To overcome this we can use the cloud concept. Here we have an entity called providers who own the resources. They make the initial investment and own the resource. Companies can contact these providers and can make use of their resources on a 'PAY FOR HOW MUCH YOU USE' basis. For example if a company need a huge server say for a period of 6 months, instead of purchasing the server it can contact providers who own such servers, use the server and pay for how much it has used. This way it becomes economical for the company. Its a WIN-WIN situation for both the company and provider.

What does cloud computing mean for the careers in computer programming?

Probably not a whole lot, other than you won't be able to touch the computer you're using to write your programs - it'll be somewhere on the internet.

The interesting part is that it should enable you to live wherever you want, but then again, you'll likely have more competition from abroad.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing?

Cloud computing essentially refers to IT infrastructure spread over the internet from which space can be extracted to provide Infrastructure as a service. Also a combination of cloud computing and virtualization.

Cloud, or distributed, computing allows for multiple computers to be a part of a larger task. A good example of this is Folding@Home, where thousands of computers are working on the task of protein folding for disease research.

The advantage is that you can split up a task among the different computers, and then collect results.

Perhaps someone would like to give some disadvantages?

Easy implementation process: Cloud hosting offers you a readily available internet based infrastructure already there which can be made available to the enterprise in least possible time. The biggest benefit for the enterprise lies in the costs avoided in terms of the IT infrastructure minimization, non-requirement of a dedicated technical IT support and management team. Thus in a way cloud hosting allows you to have the same application and business process implemented without actually investing in the backend technical complexities.

Service "rented out" on "pay as you go" model: Cloud hosting model is essentially based on the principle of pay as you go model. Thus you are not penalized for the unused IT infrastructure that a cloud host may have but you are assured of the availability of the infrastructure at a very short notice. This implies that technology costs and risks are being shared by the services provider. This essentially means that the enterprise is absolved of the scalability and provisioning issues. Besides this the cloud hosting minimizes the barriers to entry for small business as earlier the same technological process required tremendous capital expenditure , beyond the capability of small and medium business.

Cost Per head: Cloud hosting services ensures that the overhead technology costs are kept at a minimum so that resources liberated from the IT infrastructure setup and management can be used for improving the business focus of the enterprise.

Accessibility of the application: internet cloud infrastructure ensures that your application is accessible from anyplace anytime and thus real time collaboration and sharing becomes a reality which can be leveraged for the enterprise productivity and efficiency.

Troubleshooting, Installation and configuring the software: cloud hosting also means that the application management is easy and optimal utilization guaranteed as the service provider installation, upgrades as well as monitor the application in real time in relation to software as well as customizes the environment as per the customer's requirement. Finally 24x7x365 IT troubleshooting is also provided by the service provider which further reduces the application process "Operating costs."

Which language used to implement cloud computing projects?

Cloud ComputingTo answer this question it would be good to provide a general definition and short overview to define what cloud computing is. In the most general terms, cloud computing can be defined as computer software applications that either execute on a remote server or maintain frequent contact with a remote server to store and retrieve data, provide new application updates and improve upon growth scalability by pooling hardware resources together. A lengthy discussion could take place to get into the specifics of cloud computing, but to stay on the topic of the original question it would be best to focus on one cloud attribute. Cloud computing should and is designed such that it is not language or implementation specific. In essence, the choice of language is up to the software development company. Languages and Cloud ComputingIt is worth noting that cloud computing involves at least two "actors"; a client and a server. Often times there are many clients and many servers, though for simplicity of discussion this article will focus on a single client and a single server. Server Side ComputingThe servers role in cloud computing can vary, however one of the most commonly used purposes of a server is to provide a "client" a set of services. These services are defined by the server and are known by the client. Services in cloud computing can be written in languages and technologies such as Java, C# ASP.NET, WCF RIA Services or using languages as simple as PHP and Perl. The important point to note is that the service is published such that most any "client" can consume the services in their own choice of language. Client Side ComputingClients are software applications that connect to remote servers to obtain information or data that the remote server provides. For example, Google is a company known by the world abound and Google has many APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that provide data to the calling client. Most recently, Google announced the release of their Civics API that provides calling clients with data "including polling place, early vote location, candidate data, and election official information to users". Though Google may have implemented or built this service using a language of their own choosing, client applications can communicate with the Google Civics API if they follow a known protocol. Google provides help and examples for languages such as Java Script, Java and C# to name a few. Cloud Computing Language Choice SummaryThis is a complex topic that could turn into a lengthy book, but if there is any point the reader should remember out of this question and answer is that the choice of language is up to the developer or software engineering company. The developing company can choose to use two entirely different languages for the client and the server. As long as the client respects the servers protocol through a web services API, then the language choice is for the most part irrelevant.

What are the benefits of cloud computing?

Simply put, cloud computing is computing based on the internet. Where in the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, cloud computing allows people access the same kinds of applications through the internet. It is a solution growing in popularity, especially amongst SMEs. The CRN predicts that by 2014, small businesses will spend almost $100 billion on cloud computing services.

So why are so many businesses moving to the cloud? It's because cloud computing increases efficiency, helps improve cash flow and offers many more benefits.
